Below is a photo of my sister’s battered copy of my book: THINGS I WILL TELL YOU WHEN I AM DEAD: published by Hidden Brook Press In August, 2017 and available online at Chapters/Indigo. Followed by a blurb from Jacob Scheier. The presentation will improve along with my WordPress Skills. I hope this blog willContinue reading “I’m Walking”
There is a mailbox on the left side of this road. Mail is a source of anticipation & excitement & writing letters to friends is also a pleasant way to spend time. Writing letters harkens to another time. When handwriting & penmanship were valued. That last sentence indicates I am getting older. I may asContinue reading “Opeongo Delight”
If you look closely, you can see my shadow. I am taking a photo of a perfect day on the Opeongo in Renfrew County. Of course however gorgeous a day nature isn’t perfect at least not in a Martha Stewart way. Breathtaking, dangerous, mundane, exciting, peaceful and at times mind numbingly mundane. But not ifContinue reading “A Perfectionist Sleeps”
I copied and pasted this photo just to see if it would work. And it has! The secrets of this universe are slowly revealing themselves. I had not intended to blog about the Pembroke Library but the practice photo had determined my course for the next few minutes. My earliest memories are of walking toContinue reading “The library”
Dance like no-one is watching and all that good stuff. My fellow blog school students give great encouragement through their posts. I am worried I won’t continue when blog school is over.

I intended to post a draft of the story but have not yet developed the require copy and paste skills. Ok, aContinue reading “Morning Larks and other strangers”
Cappuccinos, Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I love Union Square & Gramercy Park in NYC. The Bowery Poetry Club. My blue bicycle. May it have a long life. The Toronto island ferry, ice formations, Artscape Gibraltar Point feels like home, walking along Bow River in Banff, Steve Earle, the Saskatchewan sky, Emma Lake, Danceland & CityContinue reading “Life”
A blog. I want a blog to create a home for my wandering self to be a writer a chronicler, caravan traveller & seventy year old woman. I am not really a caravan traveller but the idea of moving around without an actual home appeals to me. There you have it. I am seventy. EveryContinue reading “Living on the Edge”
February 4, 2020 Dear World, My apologies for the drunken, overwrought letters, mailed to made up addresses. Like notes in a bottle. I have been clean& sober for forty-four years. And I guess this is another too long letter to the world. You might recall that in those days I was with a guy whoContinue reading “Fondest Love”
